Hymn 4

John Newton


Walking with GOD.


By faith in CHRIST I walk with God,

With heav’n, my journeys’–end, in view;

Supported by his staff and rod,

Ps 23:4

My road is safe and pleasant too,

I travel through a desert wide

Where many round me blindly stray;

Ps 107:7

But He vouchsafes to be my guide,

And will not let me miss my way.

Though snares and dangers throng my path,

And earth and hell my course withstand;

I triumph over all by faith,

Ps 27:1,2

Guarded by his Almighty hand.

The wilderness affords no food,

But God for my support prepares;

Provides me every needful good,

And frees my soul from wants and cares.

With him sweet converse I maintain,

Great as he is I dare be free;

I tell him all my grief and pain,

And he reveals his love to me.

Some cordial from his word he brings,

Whene’er my feeble spirit faints;

At once my soul revives and sings,

And yields no more to sad complaints.

I pity all that worldlings talk

Of pleasures that will quickly end;

Be this my choice, O Lord, to walk

With thee, my Guide, my Guard, my Friend.
